I bought a 7 oz. can of huitlacoche. I don't expect it to taste anything like the fresh in Mexico I was spoiled with, but I want to try something with it and I'm not sure what. Any ideas?
I would swear I had enchiladas with it at Rosa Mexicano in NYC years ago. Checked their menu and didn't find it, but did find the following, which you might want to try:
Rollo de Pechuga
Chicken breast filled with huitlacoche. Sautéed and served sliced with a chile poblano sauce.
Ravs sound good, too.
I may be a dolt, but I don't taste a huge difference in huitlacoche fresh and canned once you've incorporated it into a dish. I've added canned huitlacoche to enchiladas to pep them up some, which works great, but never tried using them in ravioli. That actually sounds promising. It doesn't take much of them to really add a lot of flavor to enchiladas.
